Last night may not have stung so much had it not been for the pomp and circumstance surrounding it. ESPN ran ads for a week touting this clash between the two winningest programs in the history of the sport. Mr. “Roundball” himself Michael Buffer was brought in to announce the lineup. And the cherry on top of it all, BBN set a freakin’ Guinness World Record. We were so hyped that we let our guard down.
Apparently, so did the team.
Let’s check in again on the #BBN hashtag again to see where folks came down on this one:

Consolation prizes, am I right?

It was as if suddenly, Kansas started speaking a different language. Our guys just couldn’t comprehend it.
Two years. Four losses to Kansas and UCLA… we'll get better #BBN

Well, if you go back one more year, then add up the total points, we’re still beating both teams. That has to count for something, right? No?
And the sun comes up in Lexington this morning ….. even after a 2nd loss at Rupp this season! #BBN
